Review ~ Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You Special Edition

Who here loves Winnie the Pooh? I do, I do! He is just the cutest silliest old bear with some really great friends. I grew up watching Pooh and love that my kids get to enjoy him also. Gracie and I have been reading House on Pooh Corner. She loves it. :)

Anyways, that's not what I'm talking about today. We received a copy of Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You Special Edition for review. I ♥ Valentine's Day!



Released on January 5th, this DVD contains 3 stories and bonus features. Here's a description from the press release...

In Un-Valentines Day, it's that warm and wonderful time when Pooh and his pals like to show how much they care. But Rabbit wants to cancel Valentine's Day because last year, he was up to his ears in the flood of cards that littered the Hundred Acre Wood. Reluctantly, everyone agrees -- until someone anonymously sends Pooh a pot of honey. Suddenly, the Valentine rush is again out of control, much to the delight of all -- including Rabbit.

In A Valentine for You, Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Rabbit see Christopher Robin making a valentine for a girl and find he's been bitten by a "Smitten" and is lovesick. Worried that he'll no longer have time for them, and hoping a second bite from the love bug will cure him, they set out on a wild adventure to capture the Smitten.

My Hero is a new-to-DVD adventure that shows the lesson of two friends truly helping each other. When Piglet saves Tigger’s life, Tigger decides to repay the favor by being Piglet’s servant. But Tigger’s new job causes Piglet more harm than good. When Tigger saves Piglet’s life, his obligation to be the servant is erased and all is back to normal.

BONUS FEATURES:
*”Catch the Love Bug Game” – Flying “Love Bugs” are on the loose in the Hundred Acre Wood and it’s up to the viewer to catch as many as possible
*Pooh-themed Valentine’s Day cards


This is a super cute DVD that I think kids of all ages will enjoy. Watching Winnie the Pooh is a timeless childhood pastime that I hope lasts for a very long time.

The suggested retail price is $29.99, but you can get it at Disney Movie Club for $14.96 plus 3.96 shipping.

*Disclaimer: I received this DVD for free from Walt Disney for review. The above opinion is my own.*
